“At present, monsoon has covered some extreme southern part of Arabian Sea and parts of southwest-southeast-east central Bay of Bengal, Andaman Sea, and Andaman Nicobar islands,” M Mohapatra, IMD’s director general of meteorology, told a leading news agency.

“In the next two to three days, it will cover more parts of the Arabian Sea," he added.
